  1. Here is the C&A amenity list https://dlxffu6hwewxp.cloudfront.net/cas/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/18063159_CAS_MemberBonus_Amenity_List_v3.pdf
  2. Personal experience - my DSS inherited his diamond status via his father. Now his girlfriend is in the lounge too... so that is 2 for starters!!! ps: what are you doing awake this early!?
  3. Not one single AN itinerary from Southampton in 2021 is the 14n Baltic.... I cannot believe they will leave that route empty - surely a 2nd ship from Southampton??? I have heard Radiance class (which is perfect for northern climate) but which one is unallocated?
  4. A and B are both diamond A and B divorce A moves in with C and C becomes diamond B moves in with D and D becomes diamond A and C split up. A moves in with E and E becomes diamond C moves in with F and F becomes diamond......  No wonder the lounge is overcrowded! 
  5. How the system works ( as it was explained to me). The staff under the tipping system are told they will earn a minimum of $2000 a month. RCI guarantees to pay them $500 a month. The rest they should earn in tips, so they could earn upwards of $2000 and that is theirs to keep. However if the tips are short and they only get $1000 in tips making this pay a total of $1500 they go to RCI and ask for a “top up” to make the agreed $2000. Every time they ask for a top up it counts against them as it means their service has not been good as people haven’t left them the full tips. This could jeopardise their chances of getting a new contract. The cruiseline pays for the airfare to the ship, the staff pay for their airfare home. *sums are for illustrative purposes
  6. 25/4/21 Cape Liberty -Halifax, NS - Azores - Bilbao - Le Havre - Southampton 20/10/21 Southampton - Cobh - Halifax NS, - Cape Liberty
  7. Anthem out of Southampton loaded. There is a nice new 'food and wine' cruise calling at Bordeaux/La Rochelle ....otherwise it is the usual itineraries
  8. It has worked well with MSC. I am thinking of the line at GR on my recent Explorer cruise with Brits wanting to remove tips before the ship had even sailed. They were told to return after 3 days - hopefully some of them forgot to do so, whilst others were getting such value out of their drinks package they were probably unable to walk to GR! I too wish it was bundled in with the fare.
  9. It should be printed on your seapass card. Letters are DX for Deluxe. Take your paper confirmation of the purchase too, just in case, and then GR can reprint your card if not.
  10. Mike Witte on Explorer was very poor. Not visible. Changed the timings without notice....about 20 people turned up to Quest. However some of the Brits onboard played a joke on him getting him to read out requests from people with dubious names..... got him to sing Happy Birthday to Tess Tickle......!
  11. Anthem on May 7, 2021 showing doing a 7n from Southampton on USA RCI site There are rumours over here that a Radiance class ship will be back to do the Northern and Baltic itineraries.. 🤷‍♀️
  12. Bayley on board the recent President cruise confirmed that they are still sorting out ports, will take about 2 months before they can confirm anything. Out of the horse’s mouth....
  13. Food excellent. Entertainment Perry Grant in the Schooner Bar, what more could you want?! CD very weak Crew great Ship tired but clean
  14. Yes, prepaying is the easiest thing to do, then you don’t have to worry about it. Just consider it as part of the cruise fare cost.
  15. €4000 in cash!! Why not use credit cards?
